Aftercare, Outreach and Pre-Need – The next frontiers

Aftercare and outreach are essentially the same. If you wanted to have a balloon send-off with children who write notes, tie it to the bottom of a helium balloon and release it into the sky, that’s an aftercare event. When you have a program that honors veterans as a group, it is an outreach program. Both programs give you an opportunity to demonstrate to your community that you are the most knowledgeable person in this community on death, dying, grieving and surviving.

Estimating Your Case Count Budget

Dear Dan, I have owned my business for years. Can you explain how and why I need to create a budget for my business?
